You can use your Young Scot National Entitlement Card to pay for school lunches in some local authorities.

You or your parent/carer can do this by loading money up on the card. 

Adding Money Online

Get in touch with your school office or local council directly to find out if you can top up the card online.

Common websites used for handling cashless catering payments are:

  • ParentPay
  • iPayImpact
  • myaccount
  • Parent Portal

Free school meals

If you are entitled to free school meals, money will be automatically added to your card every day that you can spend in the school canteen.

You cannot add money to your Young Scot NEC via Young Scot or Young Scot Membership.

If you are experiencing trouble with cashless catering websites or with your card not working for school meals, we advise you to get in touch directly with your school office or local authority for more help, as Young Scot does not have access to cashless catering payment sites. Find information about your local authority

If you need a new card, find the information on getting a replacement card here.
